well when I played this game the first thing I noticed was a lack of challenges. Not to mention even thought there are differences between the races they are big enough. As for the battles, they are interesting if you decided to play the arcade version. Now if they could take this game idea and redo it to seem more like star war battle front. then it might actually be worth a second look at it
Star Trek: Conquest is a poorly executed, highly imbalanced strategy game. The basic plot is everyone's at war with everyone else, and the goal is to take control of all the star systems before your opponent(s) do. One thing that would have helped is a tutorial, showing people new to the turn-based strategy genre how to play. Another complaint I had is all of the characters featured were second- and third-tier characters, most of which had only appeared in only ONE episode. As a Trekker, I know the games are hit-and-miss, mainly miss. Bethesda has only made 2 good Trek games: Tactical Assault for the DS and the PSP and Legacy for the Xbox 360 and PC. Please, stay away. Far away!!
